Afghanistan: If we leave

Congratulations to TIME magazine for its cover photo of an Afghan girl who, last year, had her nose and ears cut off by her husband. A Taliban judge ordered the punishment after the 18-year old ran away from her husband's home (here's the accompanying TIME story).

Critics of the Afghanistan war (like me) need to confront the fact that bringing the troops home is likely to lead to a great deal more misery for the people of Afghanistan.
